Another outstanding field of cars filled the pits for the recently restarted action at Lansing, and fans filled up the stands to see the second full night of racing at Chateau Speedway on Friday. 

The feature with the roughest go of the night was the Hanson Tire WISSOTA Midwest Modified, which had three of the six cautions of the night fall during their main event. When all was said and done it was Kadden Kath, of Ellendale, taking his second straight feature win as he outran Greg Pfeifer Jr., of Austin, and Tony Bloom, of Grand Meadow, to the checkers.

Two cautions slowed the action but not Steve Wetzstein, of West Concord, as he roared his way to the feature win in the French’s Repair USRA A Mod Class.

Power 96 USRA Hobby Stocks were slowed by just one brief caution in their main event when a car stalled on the track late.  The win went to Scott Spilde, of Cresco, Iowa.

Taking advantage of a front row start, Zach Elward, of Hayfield, led flag to flag in a caution free Double M Transport USRA B Mod main event.

Skjeveland Sanitation USRA Stock Cars saw Blake Adams, of McIntire, Iowa ,grabbing the feature win ahead of last year’s point champion Travis Shipman, of Mason City, Iowa.  Jason Newkirk, of Austin, who took home the class’s lone heat win, came home third in the main event.
